    Although i do a lot of work in Photoshop, and could never replace it with a Web App., i think that Express represents a huge leap forward for web 2.0 complexity. It also seems like a great way to access all of your pictures from any computer with internet, allowing for more options the flikr or photo bucket.

    What do you think? Will it take off?

    I think it's a great way to store photos and do some light photo retouches. However, after loading my entire photo library (~1300 photos) into the site it takes minutes after logging in to be able to see anything, so I think this will hurt widespread use until it gets fixed. Other than that, I found the actual editing to be really easy for beginners such as myself because of the visual elements used to portray changes made to photos, so I hope it becomes popular.

    The troubling part for me, as has been pointed out elsewhere... is this section of the EULA- https://www.photoshop.com/express/terms.html

    8. Use of Your Content.

    1. Adobe does not claim ownership of Your Content.

    Don't think I'll be using as it stands... unless others have some additional information or clarification.

    I also have problems with the ToU as it stands (although to be fair, John Nack's blog seems to imply this will change RSN).

    What concerns me most is that although I wasn't really in love with the performance of Flash on the PC, it is -- unfortunately -- downright abysmal on the Mac.

    If Adobe is so hellbent on getting Flash on the iPhone, a prerequisite should be for them to get comparable performance for Flash on OS X (similar benchmarks and resource usage to Flash on XP).

    If you're really lazy and unwilling to ever learn and you don't want to do anything other than minor editing then I can see the appeal. Photoshop allows you to do complex and simple things with better results. And some things can be done quickly and with ease NTM practice makes perfect.

    The Use of Content is disconcerting to say the least.
